Obama Pal Sprung From Jail By Iraqi Fugitive

It's one of those things the mainstream media won't bother discussing in this presidential campaign, but Sen. Barack Obama has this really sleazy close friend and political fixer who is on trial in Chicago for buying and selling influence in Illinois politics. Tony Rezko has been in jail without bond while he is being tried on federal corrupt influence charges for months now because he failed to disclose a 7-figure wire transfer payment he received from a corrupt former Iraqi businessman, Nadhmi Auchi. Rezko finally made bail last week with a little help from another Iraqi fugitive from justice, Aiham Alsammarae. The Sun-Times is reporting that Alsammarae put up more than one-third of the $8.5 million in cash and property pledged for Rezko's bail.

In other Obama news you won't read about in the mainstream media, Larry Sinclair, the man who has accused Obama of doing drugs and having sex with him in the back of limousine in Chicago in 1999, now says that Chicago Police have expressed an interest in questioning him about the mysterious murder of a gay choir director at Obama's church. Donald Young, choir director of the church where Obama has attended services for the past 20 years, was found shot to death on December 23, 2007 in his South Side Chicago apartment. Sinclair claims that Young spoke to him about his sex and drugs allegations, purportedly on behalf of Obama, prior to his unexplained murder. According to Sinclair, Young said in telephone conversations with him last fall that Obama had spoken to his minister about his past drug use and planned to discuss it publicly. Young communicated to Sinclair his concern that Sinclair not discuss the drug and sex allegation publicly. Sinclair said Young told him he was an intimate friend of Obama's.

Finally, we need to get all of these allegations out on the table. These are serious and need to be discussed and answered by Obama. Obama has yet to deny Mr. Sinclair's allegations. He has yet to fully explain his relationships/friendships with Rezko, Ayers, Auchi, et al. Why is it Obama expects the American people to just accept what he says and just go away? NOT!!!

Cathy - Do you realize your oxymoron? You said Obama has "yet to fully explain his relationship/friendships. . ." and then say "why is it Obama expect the American people to just accept what he SAYS. . ." Sounds like you answered your own question: You just don't want to listen.

Indeed, he has explained his relationships with Rezko and Ayers in great detail, and in nationally televised debates. It does appear that some just don't want to listen. Obama is not compelled, however, to give cred to every nutcases' incredible allegations by acknowleding them.

I think this blog is above the tabloid sleaze that is involved in this story...but if we do demand it for one candidate then we should fully discuss every tabloid accusation made by publicity seekers against all 3 candidates. There are many against Hillary and McCain but I am NOT going to repeat them. Those who repeat them just perpetuate them.

Talk about tabloid sleaze, Art Fuggins. Obama is the one who got elected to the U.S. Senate by peddling sleazy information to reporters from his primary and general election opponents' sealed divorce records to destroy them and pave the way for his election.

This is just more of the same -- excuse anything and everything any prominent Republican does -- even make them President of the airport board if you like.

But, any democrat is going to get accused of anything. And if you look like you might be the next President of the United States, you'll even be accused of murder.

I think Obama is naive when he thinks he can actually work across the aisle when so many republicans roil the waters with chum like Sinclair.

Obama is too controversial to beat McCain. We cannot take a chance on this. Dems unite behind Hillary and make sure we get to the white house.
Can you afford to gamble your job, home, children's education,etc to back obama? The time has come that we must unite behind Hillary. She is the only one that will beat McCain and we must achieve this.
